A “New” Easel for My Art Studio.
Yesterday, I was gifted with something very special for my new art studio.
As many of you may recall, my brother passed away two days after Christmas – just a few months ago. He sadly took his own life. He was a troubled man who struggled with alcoholism, but was once a bright, highly intelligent boy and handsome young man who lost his way due to the disease that took over his life.
I came to find out he went through a period where he had a passion for art and tried his hand at painting. Though I have not seen any of the work he did, his friend generously offered his art easel to me as a small remembrance of him.
And so I placed it next to my current one hubby bought me when I decided I wanted to try my hand at painting almost two years ago. He has been so supportive and encouraging, and even made me a room (though he will tell it much less romantically stating he was tired of my art stuff all over the house!).
How couldn’t one enjoy and feel loved spending time in a room made for me by my hubby and with so many beautiful things from so many wonderful friends and family members.
And now this special remembrance.
Cheers & Hugs,
